Още с излизането си романът се превръща в абсолютен бестселър, какъвто остава и дълго след смъртта на автора си, като се откроява със своя забележителен реализъм в описанията на „низшите обществени кръгове“. Образите на Фльор-дьо-Мари, чийто произход остава неясен до последните епизоди на романа и която е „слабост“ на княз Рудолф фон Геролщайн, както и на Риголет (Смешкарк ...more

Les Miz, The Lord of the Rings, Batman, the Avengers, the novels of James Elroy--as well as the crews of Star Trek and Star Wars, and the profilers of Criminal Minds--might not have achieved their present forms without The Mysteries of Paris. Yet this Eugene Sue novel is virtually unread and almost forgotten today.

The upper middle-class Sue began his working life as a ship's surgeon, but by his middle twenties—1829—he returned to Paris to eke out a living as a free-lance writer. It was then that
Our story so far….

Amongst the sinks and dens of the Paris backstreets a mysterious figure lurks. The criminals whisper in hushed tones. There is a dark avenger on the streets. Even the great amongst the fallen are subject to his heavy hand and rough justice. Those who see the errors of their ways, those who are victims dragged down to the gutter and yet still retain their hope, those who have not given up on their fellow man, these may see the fair face of mercy and be given a new chance at life
Eugene Sue was a wildly popular serial writer in his day - I find serial writers (like Dickens)compelling because they wrote for the everyday person not just the elite of their time. This brought them popularity, yes, and influence too. This novel shed light on the plight of the poor of Paris in a manner not easily dismissed.
(I like to think of the readers waiting breathlessly for the next installment of the story.)

I was hoping for something in the Hugo, Balzac, or Dumas line - a gritty adventu

Non era il suo momento... dopo cinque capitoli e la presentazione dei personaggi principali avevo già capito - a grosse linee, dopo tutto è un feuilleton anzi, la madre di tutti i feuilleton - chi era chi e cosa era destinato a fare... e non potevo farcela a reggere per tutti i volumi. Forse, quando sarà passato un po' di tempo, potrò affrontarlo meglio, ma per questa volta mi è bastato poco. ...more
Écouté la version enregistrée par de multiples voix sur Très bon enregistrement, qui rend le tout très vivant. Je comprends pourquoi on a dit que les Parisiens attendaient la fin de ce feuilleton avant de mourir. Ça donne envie de lire la suite. ...more

loved the mystery at the beginning. Felt labored by the end though. Probably just a difference in cultural expectations now vs the period it was written.

Как-то Евгений Евтушенко разделили человечество на две категории: тех, кто читал и тех, кто не читал "Братья Карамазовы" Достоевского. У меня было подобное желание разделения по поводу "супер-кирпича" Эжена Сю "Парижские тайны". Целых две недели я мурыжил эту долгоиграющую книгу! 75 часов!
Конечно, книга несколько устарела. Многие социальные и экономические проблемы, поднятые Сю, остались в прошлом, но кое-что осталось. Всё та же вечная борьба добра со злом. Хотя, как водится, добро и зло в дейст

Franchement j'en veux limite à l'amie qui m'a recommandé ce livre comme étant passionnant... C'est poussif, bien pensant, lourd et le peu que j'ai lu de l'histoire est tiré par les cheveux. J'abandonne au milieu du premier tome (il y en a 5...) ...more

Hấp dẫn phết, hóa ra tập 1 từng có phiên bản rút gọn in ở VN hồi xưa.

I have a copy of the entire book, rather than separate volumes, so this is a review of Les Mystères de Paris in all its glory.

To call this book "sprawling" is an understatement. There are multiple interlocking plots and subplots, characters who come and go--some with multiple names (la Goualeuse has no fewer than five over the course of the book)--and a few loose ends that never quite get resolved. There are ridiculous coincidences throughout and more than a few hoary plot devices. And yet the s

From Wikipedia:

Joseph Marie Eugène Sue (20 January 1804 – 3 August 1857) was a French novelist.
He was born in Paris, the son of a distinguished surgeon in Napoleon's army, and is said to have had the Empress Joséphine for godmother. Sue himself acted as surgeon both in the Spanish campaign undertaken by France in 1823 and at the Battle of Navarino (1828). In 1829 his father's death put him in poss
